Found July 03, 2012 on Lost My Way:
PLAYERS: Mark Wahlberg
Picture Watching Mark Wahlberg talk to a stuffed animal is worth the price of admission. Sometimes it makes me upset that I'm so poor because I don't get to do things other people do, like go to the movies. Ted has come out recently and in its first weekend at the box office it broke the record of highest-grossing opening for a non-sequel, R-rated comedy (I'm not sure why that would even need to be tracked as a record) that was previously held by The Hangover, grossing $54.1 million over $45 million previously held by The Hangover.

I haven't been able to see Ted yet and it actually bothers me a little bit. I don't remember the last time I even went to the movies because every time I'm there I feel like I'm being raped of my money. You go out on a date (because who's going to the movies by themselves) and that's easily $40 right there. You know what else costs $40? Cooking an entire dinner with a bottle of wine for said date which will more than likely lead to sex. Going to the movies hasn't led to sex since the eighth grade, now it's just a waste of money.

TL;DR Ted breaks a box office record that I'm not even sure should be a record.

Mahhkie Mark Was Being A Fackin Hardo Pats Fan

While he’s actually been a serviceable actor in some of his movies, the only real use I have for Mark Wahlberg are the tales of his towering dickishness, whether it be him claiming he would have stopped 9/11 if he were on one of the hijacked planes, that he knew who was going to win all the Oscars before the show because he has a friend at PriceWaterhouse To that, we can add the...

Ted is the story of a veritable grown-up Pinocchio, a teddy bear...
